COOL OR NOT COOL: Throwing A Rager While Your Parents Are Away?

Some industrious Park Slope teen decided to throw a big-ass part-ay while her rents were away. Unfortch, the crowd got a little wild and stole some shit. Blah, blah, blah: "if Woody had gone straight to the police, none of this would have ever happened."

Ok, I didn't need to throw secret parties cause my parents were always like: HEY! WHY DON'T YOU THROW A PARTY!," but still. I kind of feel like this shit is a right of passage, ya know? Bitches just need to be more careful about who they invite.

So I say cool!

We support you, oh likely grounded and never leaving your house again except for school Park Slope teen!

HAY Center Slope, You Ready for a New Neighbor? [Movin' on Up]

So, tomorrow marks one week until the keys to my new place are in my hands--and I'm officially a center-Sloper.  (Don't worry, Gogo, I'll still captain the South Slope decathlon team; I'm only a few blocks above 9th.)  Yes, the lease was signed (DISH. WASHER.) and as I begin my intrepid trek from my quiet South Slope place that's dangerously close to one bagel place up to my new studio alarmingly closer to yet another bagel place, I'd like to pay homage (and say FU) to the things I will no longer be right next to.

Mani/Pedi Smackdown: Put Your Best Foot Forward...

It's that time again for the females of Park Slope. We need some pruning and beautification and we need it NOW. Preferably minus these rugrats!

Because—as has been previously noted, I'm LAZY—I generally don't stray very far for the mani/pedi/waxing/massagey. It's usually Seven Nails, which I really kind of hate for the insincere smarm factor (and the price), or the one above the market on 7th btwn Carroll and Garfield, which I kind of love (but it's also a lot 'o money). What is that place called, anyway?

My friend Karen, however, thinks these joints are highway robbery and won't set her dainty toes in a nail salon below 9th Street. She's been taking Spanish lessons from her pedicurist somewhere around 12th Street. It's a 2 for 1 deal, I guess.

So, show us your toes please! Review your fave and least fave PS nail salons in the comments.

Ace Supermarket: "Turkey Pastrami and Vegan Cupcakes, Here We Come!??"

No clue if this shit is true, but just read this on Brooklynian:

"Was told that the Ace Supermarket at 7th and Berkeley place is nearly ready to undergo what sounds to be a pretty extensive renovation (think Union market-esque), complete with bakery, deli, etc. I think they may be taking over the space which used to be zuzu's petals next door. not sure..."

Whoa.

I hope this shit *is* true, though it will sting for me to have this place closed for renos as its pretty much my round the corner goto.
